Color Me Up

July 17th, 2007

Ah, it's a beautiful day. I had a rough start; woke up with a killer migraine, stumbling to the bathroom to get some medicine I stubbed my toe on an old bureau and a chunk of wood got lodged in my toe. Owie. Got an explanation for my migraine (got my period) and went back to bed with my hair over my eyes to block out any light and worked on breathing through the nausea. After I fell back to sleep, I woke to snuggly kitties surrounding me and happy birthday messages from family and friends on my phone and email. I had some leftover ice cream from a sundae brought to me by the fiansor last night and puttered around before a dancing and singing in the shower session. Now, I'm off to make the most of the rest of my day. I think I'll get some art supplies to play with, have an art picnic, and maybe take a walk in the woods. I hope your day is a colorful one! To help you along, here's a fun web-page from Pantone called Colorstrology. They list a pantone color and characteristics for each day of the year that tell about the people born on that day. Today's color is Iris with the words Interesting, Private and Provocative and this description: "There is always something unusual and provocative about people born on this day. You are your own person and you like to do things in your own way. You are not the type to follow others. You can be seductive and controlling when you want to be. Your personal color helps you connect with others while dissolving feelings of isolation. Wearing, meditating or surrounding yourself with Iris allows ease and flexibility as you move through obstacles." Heh, kinda fun, eh? Oh, the word seductive just reminded me that I have a coupon for a free bottle of personalized perfume from Aveda. Yum. I think I'll go pick that up today.
